Street Tree Maintenance Plan

Street trees improve air quality, health, and property values. They are the most impactful and most cost effective way to improve the quality of Philly's public space, but the City’s tree planting and maintenance programs are falling short.

Without an early maintenance program, many of the new trees that have been planted die needlessly. We are asking the Mayoral and City Council candidates to fund street tree maintenance accordingly and put out an RFP for a contractor to maintain trees through their whole lifecycle, as Washington DC does.
